Saikyou Onmyouji no Isekai Tenseiki is set to premiere in January 2023, with the exact date yet to be specified.
Precious little is known about the specifics, too, but we’ll hereby provide all relevant information that has been disclosed as of September 2022.
The Reincarnation of the Strongest Exorcist in Another World light novels and manga
The Reincarnation of the Strongest Exorcist in Another World is yet another isekai title, set to hit big screens during the Winter 2023 anime season.
It is also another adaptation of a light novel series. The almost-eponymous light novels, written by Kiichi Kozusu and illustrated by Shiso (Volume 1) and Kihiro Yuzuki (onwards) debuted on the user-generated novel publishing website Shōsetsuka ni Narō in 2018.
The full title of the light novels is “Saikyou Onmyouji no Isekai Tenseiki: Geboku no Youkai-domo ni Kurabete Monster ga Yowasugirunda ga” (lit., “A Record of the Strongest Onmyouji’s Reincarnation to Another World: These Monsters Are Too Weak Compared to My Youkai”).
In 2019, Futabasha acquired the series and has published five volumes under the M Novels imprint as of October 2021.
The Saikyou Onmyouji no Isekai Tenseiki light novels inspired a manga series illustrated by Toshinori Okazaki, which has been serialized digitally via Futabasha’s Gaugau Monster website since 2020. The individual chapters have been collected into four tankōbon volumes.
The Reincarnation of the Strongest Exorcist in Another World TV anime
The Reincarnation of the Strongest Exorcist in Another World anime adaptation was announced earlier in July, whereby the first teaser trailer was uncovered.
Take a look:
Ryosuke Shibuya is directing the anime at Studio Blanc, while Nobuyoshi Nagayama is the chief director. Touko Machida is handling the series scripts. Shibuya, Nagayama, and Machida previously cooperated on Life Lessons with Uramichi-Oniisan (2021).
Additional staff includes:
- Masayoshi Kikuchi, Sayaka Ueno — character designers
- Alisa Okehazama (Jujutsu Kaisen) — music composer
Plot-wise, the title is set in ancient Japan and follows Kuga no Haruyoshi, a resourceful onmyouji* who is betrayed by his allies and left to die. The Reincarnation of the Strongest Exorcist being an isekai title, you can probably infer what comes next.
Haruyoshi reincarnates into another world — as a member of a family of magic users.
It would seem that divination and magic practices typical for different eras are about to clash in this anime series, so stay tuned for future announcements!
* Onmyouji/Onmyōji — officials performing prayers and divination (a.k.a. “onmyōdō,” lit. “the Way of Yin and Yang”) under the jurisdiction of the Ministry in ancient Japan.
